There is so much information on music production and mixing online that it is easy to get lost.

Going on YouTube and other websites to solve your mixing problems can help sometimes, but you have probably often found yourself confused and not finding any answers. Because how can you search for something you don’t know the name of? This is the problem that so many producers face: You know you’re missing something, but you don’t know what exactly. So you keep searching and trying the wrong things, which is just wasting your time.

This is where the Mixing & Mastering course comes in. The course features all the steps to get your track from unmixed and unfinished to fully mixed and mastered. The course is specifically designed to take you through the steps in the right order and with the right details, so you will learn mixing and mastering the right way, instead of learning bits and pieces from tons of different places. This will make your learning process much more efficient and fun, while also saving you a huge amount of time.

What students say

YOur instructor

Hey, I am Tim and my artist name is Dread Pitt.

I have been producing music for 10 years. While studying psychology in college, I downloaded the FL Studio demo and started experimenting. Over the years, I developed my skills and after graduating, I started building my music career.

My music has been played millions of times across the world, gotten impressive sync placements, and has been supported by record labels, brands, and tastemakers such as NoCopyrightSounds, Trap City, Trap Nation, NFL, MLB, Vice, and more.

My passion for music and my master’s degree in psychology fuse together in my mission to share my knowledge. In the last 4 years, I have personally mentored over 50 students and gave many masterclasses and workshops, all with great results. My goal is to share my knowledge to as many people as I can, so I hope to welcome you in one of my courses.

Learn the complete process of becoming a professional music producer



You can use any software you are currently using to make music. The theoretical topics are universal and not limited to any DAW. The step-by-step videos explain things in FL Studio, but the topics explained are easily translated to any other DAW, plus the course includes links to tutorials using other DAWs wherever is needed. 

No, all the things that are explained in the course can be done with stock plugins in your DAW. Most things are explained with stock FL Studio plugins, and some with third-party plugins. The course also features many links to useful third-party plugins which you can download for free.

This is an intermediate course. It is recommended to know your way around a DAW, and to be able to make a track. If you need extra help with your creative ideas before you start the mix, I recommend to check the Creative Production Course, or get the Complete Producer Bundle.

You have lifetime access. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like – across any and all devices you own.

That is completely up to you. It is a self-paced online course – you decide when you start and when you finish.If you already have more experience, it’s only better.

Definitely. This course is included in the Complete Music Producer bundle. The offered bundles give the best value by far with an extra discount of at least 30% on the usual shop prices.

I wouldn’t want that to happen. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund on the course.
